I was looking for a cosy book that I could read in a day or so and this definitely delivered.
Nell believes in love at first sight and The One. She thinks The One for her is Riley.
Riley doesn’t believe in romance or true love much.
Nell’s attempts to get Riley to notice her make Riley think she’s a bit weird. I loved that. At first Nell came across as a bit daft, but her own awareness of how oddly she was behaving made it funny. Her behaviour itself becomes a critical part of the plot.
There’s a lovely sense of community about Bramblewick and there’s lots of Christmas to go round. If you’re looking for a fun and festive read, this is a good book.
